Report: Gervonta Davis involved in hit-and-run accident in Baltimore

“Tank” is back in the news, but not for reasons you might hope.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

According to WJZ, Gervonta Davis was involved in a hit-and-run accident in Baltimore last night, with a source telling the station that Davis was driving a car that ran a red light and struck another vehicle, though police have not confirmed whether Davis was driving or even at the scene.

Baltimore Police was called to the scene for a report of a multi-vehicle collision. They found several people suffering from minor injuries and one person was taken to an area hospital for treatment, according to their report.

According to police, a vehicle ran through a red light and struck another vehicle, then left the scene.

WJZ report that the accident happened around 1:53 am ET on Thursday.

The 25-year-old Davis is coming off of a huge win in his professional career this past Saturday, when he knocked out Leo Santa Cruz to retain at 135-pound title and win a 130-pound belt for a third time.

This would not be Davis’ first run-in with the law, as he’s had a few charges over the years, including earlier this year after a viral video showed him battering his ex-girlfriend.
